Adding three non-consecutive terms of his service as the Governor of California, Jerry Brown has become the longest serving Governor of the state. He is revered worldwide for traveling to India and working for the country’s people along with Mother Teresa.

He has a media-friendly personality, and remains in the news for his presidential ambitions, personal life and progressive politics efforts. He was nicknamed as ‘Governor Moonbeam’ for a communications satellite lobbying.

Brown has dated a number of high profile ladies, including Linda Ronstadt, a popular singer. In 2005, he got engaged to Anne Gust, and married later in the year. The couple met in a party in 1990, and married after a courtship of 15 years.
